Banqueting Venues in Dorset

Banquets were traditionally a large meal or feast where dinner, usually a main course and dessert, were served to guests who were seated in cavernous spaces. As times have changed, so too have the rituals associated with banqueting.

Banquets are still an excellent way for staff and clients to network and bond and they can take place over lunch or dinner. They complement training sessions perfectly and are a popular way to round off a conference. Many have a charitable aim and there is often an air of celebration or ceremony to them.

So banqueting spaces vary accordingly, from vast halls to intimate lounges. Some of the venues listed on the following pages are elaborate, ornate spaces, while others are blank canvases that can be dressed creatively to suit your event. You can choose to wine and dine your guests in restaurants, historic houses, bars or unusual venues such as museums and sports stadiums.

What all the venues have in common is flexibility of space, delicious catering options and a dedication to making your event a success. They are dotted around the country and are situated in rural idylls and city centre hotspots.
